The OVHWizard is a non tactile contact line measuring system for determining the contact line height and stagger with and without uplift. The system operates with ultrasound according to the runtime measurement principle. This measuring principle offers the advantage over optical systems that it also works in direct sunlight, light rainfall or fog. Thanks to its weight of only about 4 kg it is easy to handle and can be installed on any vehicle roof with a few actions. A simple RS232 link to the PC or laptop enables communication with the measuring software.
A special evaluation software which was developed in co-operation with SIEMENS AG allows the measured data to be compared with the given line data and types of catenary.
The system is approved by the DB, the SBB, the OBB Network rail and the Turkish Railways TCCD.
For the safe use electrified railway tracks - as well in the rail area as in tram area - is the observance of the exact contact wire vital relevant. This applies especially for the modern high speed line. Next to contact wire height and lateral p

MANY OPTIONS AVAILABLE: CAMERA
With the "Camera" option the OVHWizard can record an image at any time during measurement of the contact wire position and display this synchronously later when playing the data.
Position of the camera on the vehicle roof
Recording of the measuring positions with display of measured data
The advantage of the recording is that you have a stored image for every measuring point which can be used as proof of the contact wire position in the measurement and can be added to the reports or sent by e-mail if required.
It is possible to save the determined information on the recorded image. By selecting a text in the camera setup, the user can determine what information is to be displayed. The camera is weather-proof, heated and suitable for use on railways.
In the "GPS" option it is possible to record the position of the vehicle during the measurement with the GPS receiver provided and to have the measured run displayed online with Google map data after the recording.
The advantage of the option "GPS" is in visualizing the whole measuring way. The GPS-receiver is easy to fix outside of the vehicle with its magnet holder.
OPTION: POLE DETECTION
The "Pole Detection" option enables the poles to be detected from the images recorded with the "Camera" option, the positions of the poles to be displayed in the measurement and a list of detected poles and their positions to be created.
This option enables:
- detection of the poles
- automatic display of the poles by the OVHWizard software
- searching for poles with the jump function
* creation of a pole list for other applications:
